"Hence the many women doing computation at Los Alomos and Bletchly Park during WW2"

Women weren't drafted into the army during the war. Men were. Terrible example.

There's a reason why so many historical photos show factories stuffed with women manufacturing bombs and planes. The male workforce was decimated as nearly every fighting-age man was required (and even some that were under 18 years old).
